Disability Services and ADA Accommodations

Presidio Graduate School is committed to a diverse and inclusive student body. In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the implementing regulations 34 CFR part 104 (barring discrimination on the basis of disability), and the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and the implementing regulations in 29 CFR part 1630 (1992), Presidio Graduate School is committed to providing students with disabilities full access to its programs, events, and facilities. Krystel Alston, the Student Services & Records Manager | Registrar, oversees the coordination of services for students with disabilities. To benefit from the protection of ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, students must self-disclose a disability and request an accommodation.

Students must submit a Request for Accommodation as well as current documentation (within 3 years) from a medical provider affirming the student’s disability and the appropriateness of the requested accommodation. PGS cannot make recommendations about what accommodations a student should request.

A student’s disability has no bearing whatsoever on a student’s acceptance or non-acceptance to any of Presidio Graduate School’s degree programs. Potential or current students with a disability seeking accommodation are encouraged to contact the Office of Student Services for answers to common questions about disability services or the accommodations process.
